    What engine mate? and how many kms? Ticking noises can be caused by a lot of different things it’s not necessarily terminal

    Yeah mech looked at my bus a few years ago and said my engine was fucked, because it had a hell of a rattle. With the help from a couple of JC members worked out it was the balancer. So instead of $3K as quoted, i fixed it myself for about 300 bucks.
